A Brief About the Disease

Ayurveda explains Urticaria as Sheetpitta and Ayurveda doesn’t consider it as a disease condition and sees it as a part of the symptoms of the disease. Urticaria or severe itching can be due to many causes and in almost all skin allergies and food allergies we can see urticaria as a symptom. As per Ayurveda, the most important to treat the disease is the first to treat the symptom. 

Causes of Urticaria

As we’ve already said Urticaria is a symptom and is caused due to many reasons:-

  • Allergies
  • Infections
  • Insect bite sting
  • Food intolerances 
  • Other skin allergy conditions like Eczema

Causes of Urticaria – As Per Ayurveda

Ayurveda considers Urticaria as Sheetpitta or Udarda, and if there’s an imbalance in doshas or Agni, then our body can have hives and rashes as such and the following can be some of the causes of Sheetpitta as per Ayurveda.

  • Imbalanced pitta dosha, excessive consumption of spicy foods can cause pitta dosha buildup and can lead to skin breakouts.
  • Accumulation of Ama visha (toxins build up), can contribute to various skin disorders, including urticaria.
  • Consuming incompatible food combinations (Viruddha Ahara) can disrupt digestion and lead to the development of skin conditions like urticaria.
  • Stress, anxiety, and emotional disturbances can trigger or exacerbate urticaria in Ayurveda. Emotions are closely linked to Pitta dosha.

Chief Complaints of the Patient 

  • Raised Skin Welts: The hallmark symptom of urticaria is the development of raised, swollen welts on the skin. 
  • Red or Pink Colour rashes all over his body. 
  • Itching, getting severe at night. 
  • Evolution of hives into bigger bumps over time.
  • Swelling around the hives. 
  • Pain or Burning Sensation when scratched severely. 

Final Diagnosis

Dr. Sahil Gupta upon looking keenly into the hives and asking a few medical-related questions the patient, made the final diagnosis as Sheetpitta. The questions the patient was asked: 

  • Do you have any food allergies?
  • Have you had any insects but sting?
  • Have you ever gotten these rashes before? 
  • How severe is the itching? 
  • Is it affecting your sleep and daily activities? 

The patient answered that once he had an insect bite sting, and since then he’s been getting rashes. That’s when the root cause of the disease was known and in Ayurveda for the optimised and precise treatment, the root cause of the disease is the must. Based on the root cause, Dr. Sahil Gupta prescribed the following medications which cured his haunting urticarial rashes all at once.

Internal Medications for Urticaria

Urticaria can’t alone be treated by the just external medicines, the root cause of the disease lies in the gut and blood, so to eliminate the impurities from the body, Dr Sahil Gupta prescribes some internal medications which Nitin Verma had been used for the last 7 months and got amazing results.
